SIR is pleased to announce a purse increase for the 2nd Annual Highbanks Hustle presented by Lightning Wings! Every driver in Saturday night's LCQ that does NOT make the feature event will receive $50. This will give an additional 10-12 drivers the chance to take home something in return for supporting our event! Everyone share this status to get the word out!!!

Who is ready to see some action on the Highbanks this weekend?

To clarify any confusion on rules for the Highbanks Hustle, we will follow POWRi rules for the duration of the event abd the 2014 season and beyond.

This means a 640cc max engine displacement, no tire doping and no fuel additives.

We will be checking all three of these this coming weekend!
